Hoganstand.Com

You ever post on it ?

Have to say, I'm a big shtar on it myself, but the site layout is quite poor.

It's got some fantastic contributers though. The wit and banter would never be replicated here.

'Wit' is an overstatement. Full of clueless contributors.

Not often that you and I agree on something.

It's got the greatest amount of WUMs that you're ever likely to come across and very little in the way of meaningful contributions.

Folks,

We all have thoughts on how other sites run and the contributions of their members to those sites, etc. etc. but I don't think boards is the place to discuss other forums, if you have a problem with the other site, either ignore it or bring it up on their site, I don't want to start an inter-domain slagging match, after all we're all just interested in GAA after all

I joined it during the weeks before Galway-Tipp last year in hurling. Actully found the posters to be very nice and helpful to me as a n00b over there but there was a bit of bickering between some of the older members.

I prefer using this forum because its more convenient and more fun stuff like prediction threads etc.

So all in all I like both although I'm a lurker over there.

I do post on it myself sometimes, but there's too many troll's and childish posters on it. A lot of the genuine, long term posters have left it, which is a shame, there used to be great debates on it years ago.

I tend not to agree. Comparing the Boards GAA threads and Hoganstand, it apperars there is more knowledge, wit, banter on HS.

Here it seems to be people just agreeing with each other all the time.

I'll agree with the few that said HS has too many children on it. But i think it's worth listening to the childer for the amount of greats.

Numerious former posters on HS have left alright. They can now be found at gaatipster.ie
It's got a very limited amount of posters, but the ones on it are fantastic.
By far the best GAA board for debate by a country mile.
Advise any of youse to check it out.

I wasn't comparing here to HS - generally the best GAA websites tend to be the county ones, like rebelgaa, res dubs, premierview etc.

I see there was a clever "whodunnit" whereby Ballboy from Mayo disappeared only to come back as Liathroidboy also from Mayo.

The site is great in general but the forum...well enough said.

HS can be good/funny sometimes after big matches for the different opinions (good, bad and funny!)
wit can get very sarcastic on it tho!

I wonder why the mods allow so much trolling/wumming on the site?
